The Process

Students receive valuable feedback about their art in group and individual critiques,
both written and verbal, and often “sit-in” on the critiques of other emerging artists in their discipline,
increasing their educational experience. Professional artists at the Festival provide in-depth
critical reviews and analysis of student work, performances and group presentations,
a process that all students report to be most beneficial to their growth as artists.
